Hi Elo,elo said:What is it like riding in Greece?
It sounds so very different to what we in the US are used to, that I'm really curious.
Elo I didn't mean to scare you, just to give you a general idea. If you lived in Athens you WOULD ride a bike as there is no way you can go anywhere in a car,bus, or other means of transport. Last year was the first year of the new Metro. It should be finished until 2004 (the Olympic Games in Athens) so I hope things will improve by then!elo said:Wow Aris! I can honestly say that I probably wouldn't ride a bike if I lived in Greece! Them's some scary stories! On the plus side, if I ever make it to Greece, I'll know to try and rent an Enduro to get around!
FYI, riding in the US is similar to riding in Germany, but without the autobahn. The difference is we also tend to lack cobblestone streets!
Hi Tigertex,tigertex said:30 ACCIDENTS!?!?! I think after the first few, I'd be quite tentative about getting on a bike again.
What's up with the little guy on the scooter going the other way? Is he actually riding on the shoulder, or is that just the way the lanes are marked.
BTW: Check out the skiing in Germany, if you can. When I was there I had a great time.
This is a cool thread. It would be interesting to hear from others about the nuances of riding in their countries.
